Thanks to the FAQ I learned howto "Making balanced two-column tables from
one-column data", but I also want to list one attribute and really don't
know how to address it. 

This is my XML:

	<element id="sometext">content</element>

and my XSL is:

<xsl:variable name="t-size" select="count(//element)"/>
<xsl:variable name="half" select="ceiling($t-size div 2)"/>
	<xsl:for-each select="//element[position() &lt;= $half]">
	<xsl:variable name="here" select="position()"/>
	<td><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></td>
	<td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>
	<td><xsl:value-of select="@id"/></td>
		<xsl:when test="../element[$here+$half]">
			<xsl:value-of select="../element[$here+$half]"/>

Sure, at the moment the @id in the 3rd cell gives the same value as the one
in the first cell, but it should contain the value of the id attribute of
the 4th cell element. I tried to construct something similar to the 4th cell
xsl code, but it just don't work. Can someone explain it to me?
